You’ve come to the right place!!

  3. Final Word

Now without further ado, let’s get rolling!

The Difference

  • In actuality, the HD1 is the same thing as the Momentum 2.0 Wireless, as well as the 2.0 Wired version. The reason for the new name is because Sennheiser does not own the rights to the Momentum name. They had to re-brand it as the HD1.
  • The only real difference comes in the form of the headphones ergonomics or design of the headband. It’s now slightly wider on the HD1 to alleviate pressure on your dome piece. The headphone also says “HD1” on it rather than “Momentum.”


There are a few versions of the Momentum that you should know about.

Final Word

I would avoid the original Momentum’s, as the fit was a bit off and the sound overall was a little less defined and focused. The Momentum 2.0 improved upon all that: Comfort is a lot better, the sound is better (particularly the mid-range),  and the headphones can be folded. There’s really no reason to opt for the original Momentum’s. Interested in reading some reviews on the 2.0’s?


Well that’s about it for today my friend! I hope this Sennheiser HD1 vs. Momentum blurb cleared things up.
